The Highway Department is responsible for maintaining approximately 100 center-line miles of Town roads. These responsibilities include snow removal and ice control, paving and the maintenance of roads, signage, roadway markings, drainage, tree and brush cutting and removal within the Town’s right of way and the disposal of non-domestic dead animals in a timely manner if they are on a TOWN road (the Highway Department will dispose of dead deer whereas dead dogs would be taken care of by the Dog Control Officer).
There are several County roads within the Town of Wilton. Those roads are maintained by Saratoga County. The major responsibility of the Town during the winter season is to keep town roads clear of snow and ice. We utilize our own work force to accomplish this task. We also ask the cooperation of Town residents in keeping the roads clear of vehicles in order to do the best and safest job possible while plowing and sanding.
